What to see in Catania
Thanks to the many flights, even low cost ones, that connect the main European cities to Catania, it has become an increasingly chosen and loved destination. Because of this, it is important to know what to visit in Catania so as not to miss anything. The Sicilian Baroque, which the city is rich in, has been declared a World Heritage Site and it is therefore a must to visit Catania if you love art.
- Plazza del Duomo: This is undoubtedly one of the best known and most famous squares in the city. This plazza cannot go unnoticed, so rich in beauty that it takes your breath away. One of the special features of this square is the presence, right in the centre of the square, of the Fountain of the Elephant, known either for the animal that was made from black lava, or for the Egyptian Obelisk that stands on its back. It is a very old and beautiful sculpture. In the same square you can see the Palazzo dei Elefanti, the seat of the Municipality of Catania, Palazzo Chierici and the Amenano fountain;
- Cathedral of Catania, dedicated to St. Agatha: This too is a very important point in the city. The church is, in fact, famous not only in Italy but also abroad for its beauty. The Cathedral is named after the patron saint of the city of Catania and is therefore the most important church in the city and one of the most beautiful in the world;
- Via Etnea: The whole historical centre of Catania is a World Heritage Site, but there are streets that cannot be missed and one of them is Via Etnea. Here you will find imposing palaces in pure Catalan baroque style that must be admired looking upwards;
- Roman Theatre of Catania traces the glorious past of the city, which is worth visiting if you love the Greeks and Romans.
